Hi, You have to use a small utility for the automated measurement, that has been written to work with Ted's Disk + CalMAN...and sends timed commands to CalMAN to take the measurements.
For example, when you want measure 11-Point Grayscale (12 Patches), 4-Point Saturation (25 Patches) using the Calibration Disk as a pattern source; each measurement run will require from the user to use the Blu-Ray Player Remote, to select the required Chapter and using the mouse from the calibration software to press 'measure' to read each patch with the meter and after each read to use the Blu-Ray Remote next chapter button to select the next required color patch, this is happening with all other calibration disks except Ted's LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk becasue I have added the capability of measuring with CalMAN with Semi-Automated or Automated these measurement runs:
CalMAN's 11-Point Grayscale
CalMAN's 21-Point Grayscale
CalMAN's 4-Point Saturation with 100% or 75% Stimulus Level (25 Colors)
CalMAN's 5-Point Saturation with 100% or 75% Stimulus Level (31 Colors)
CalMAN's 10-Point Saturation with 100% or 75% Stimulus Level (61 Colors)
CalMAN's 4-Point Luminance (28 Colors)
CalMAN's 5-Point Luminance (35 Colors)
CalMAN's 10-Point Luminance (70 Colors)
CalMAN’s Color Checker Classic (24 Colors)
CalMAN’s Color Checker SG (96 Colors)
CalMAN’s Color Checker SG Fleshtones (19 Colors)
Using Ted's LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk with CalMAN, there 2 unique measurement ways (not available at other calibration disks):
; where the Disk Chapter is auto-changing to next required color patch per 2/6/10sec. and the user use only the measure button with it's mouse (not using the blu-ray remote anymore).
; where the Disk Chapter is auto-changing to next required color patch per 2/6/10sec. and a external utility is pressing timed the measure button so the user don't need to use it's mouse again until the end of the measurement run of each chapter.
I'm using a small utility that sends timed keyboard shortcuts commands to CalMAN, to able to measure using CalMAN without user prompt.
These 2 measurement solutions using Ted's LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk saves user some operations or all operations for the user until the end of these measurement runs that are described here
or Ted's LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk
The chapters of the disk has been created based to the exact color patch order that CalMAN requests them.... and the color patches are auto-changing to the next required patch per measurement run with the available time options to autochange the patterns for every 2 / 6 / 10 sec.
Klein Colorimeter users will be able to use 2 sec per pattern to measure every chapter rapidly. i1Display PRO, SpectraCAL's C6, XRite's i1PRO1/2, and basICColor DISCUS users will be able to use the 6 or 10 second display time per each color patch chapter.....this has to do with meter settings/ type of display....if the display has deep blacks and the meter will take more time to measure the darkest shades then maybe the 6 sec per patch will not work, but the 10 sec per patch will work for sure.
For the users that the black level measurement takes more than 10 sec. they can use the Batch file without black measurement and enter their black level manually to CalMAN Settings.
Anyone who want to try how it works, you can download the Free Version
to measure the performance of your display using the ColorCheckerClassic Chapter (24 Color Patches).
There a lot of professionals that are using this method of Automated measurement with their Klein K-10A, where the patterns are AutoChanging per 2 seconds and you can setup Klein to have 1sec pattern delay before each meter read also.For 11-Point Grayscale it takes 2M 24sec, for 4-Point Saturation it takes 5M 12Sec with Klein K-10A.I have posted how this works here: Ted's LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk.
